It was the human chain idea, which was very close to Salman Khan’s heart that got him to agree to work in the remake of the film Stalin. Stalin may be called 'Radhe' in the Hindi remake.
Salman Khan had initially committed to working in the Hindi remake of 'Vrindavanam' for brother Sohail Khan after the latter realised that he may need to postpone or even perhaps shelve his film 'Sher Khan' because he would be unable to match the graphical mastery of 'The Life Of Pi' in recreating the Royal Bengal Tiger in the limited budgets Bollywood movies are made at.
In the given scenario, the idea of the human chain, where everyone helps three people in need, who in turn helps three more people - an idea derived from the each one teach one idea which resulted in total literacy in Kerala, seemed like very intelligent idea for Salman.
Salman who has now launched a Being Human store and is also planning a Being Human restaurant in the near future, the idea of a film which could turn into a movement and further his Being Human initiatives sounded better and Salman preferred to work in the 'Stalin' remake.
Having said that, Salman will also be seen in the role of an Army Major who is fighting the Pakistanis in the film during the Kargil War when a few bullets pierce his body and then he turns into a Samaritan wanting to help people.
His last biggie 'Ek Tha Tiger' was a huge blockbuster collecting close to Rs 200 crore when he took on the might of the ISI from Pakistan in the film.
And now the anti-Pakistan angle has excited Pocket Hercules again as he plans to fight villains and the in the country and across the border as well.
